Betrayal Of Trust
8 June, 2000
author: Rebecca Ditch-Hammack (aka Dreamer)


A friendship good as gone
Betrayed by a lie
When something tears it
Say good-bye

Muddled thoughts caused by self inflicted pain
Responses not the norm
Not the process of the sane
I can no longer let it pass

Excuses no longer hold the water
They seemed to long ago
Made allowances
Now pale in the light

Who did you think you were
Crossing boundaries designed in friendship
Betrayal of trust is sacred
My heart now feels the lack

It's sad you may never realize
How the pain you caused will hurt
The lasting effect you have put upon
My trust thrown to the dirt

Our friendship, it is in the past
Nothing to salvage now
Without a trust, it can never be
Drug induced behavior, fine your free

------- Author's Notes -------

Friendships can let you down. Once the trust is gone there is nothing left to salvage. And your left with only the choice to let go.
